Ingredients

  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup amaretto
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup sliced almonds
  • GLAZE:
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325°. Grease and flour four 5-3/4x3x2-in. loaf pans.
  2. In a large bowl, beat eggs, sugar, water, amaretto, oil and melted butter until well blended. In another bowl, whisk flour, baking powder and salt; gradually beat into egg mixture. Stir in almonds.
  3. Transfer to prepared pans. Bake 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  4. Meanwhile, for glaze, combine sugar, water and butter in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Cook and stir 3 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in amaretto.
